Does anyone know where I can get Schrader valve sized pipe/tube?
Being the evil little scientist that I am, I was thinking about building an airsoft gun similar to this - http://www.instructables.com/id/Homemade-500-fps-CO2-Airsoft-Gun - but shinier and a little more well built. My idea (for the basic gun structure/ mechanics) is to take some 7.7mm O.D./1.7mm Wall Thickness pipe and thread one end to fit into a female Schrader valve. I found the O.D. by just looking up schrader valve specs. on Wikipedia and the Wall thickness was found by the necessity to have a 6mm I.D. to fit the airsoft bbs. My question (actually questions) to you guys is 1. Where to get pipe like that 2. What type (brass, aluminum, etc.) would work 3. Would this - http://www.amazon.com/Slime-20088-4-Way-Tool-Valve/dp/B0020T17J2/ref=pd_sim_auto_2 - work for threading said pipe 4. Would this work? Thank you for all of your answers and any other information pertaining to this project that would help me.
